Vietnam in May: where best to go?
Choosing “your” heavenly place it is necessary to understand what you want from recreation.
After all, if you believe the guidebooks, Vietnam is described as follows: snow-white clean beaches, crystal clear water and wild jungle. But in fact it is a little different, because the white sand is not all resorts, and it needs to find the jungle is also not close, sometimes you have to travel to them, and not one hour.
As in any country, holidays in Vietnam can be divided into three types: resorts with the best beaches, recreation with children and recreation for lovers of nightlife.
Nha Trang in May
Nha Trang is located on the shores of the most beautiful bay in all of Vietnam. The resort is very large and incredibly diverse. In this place you can find recreation and expensive hotels, and cheap, but clean, gestas. An incredibly large number of good restaurants with seafood, where you can try a dish with all kinds of sea creatures, such as lobster of enormous size will cost no more than $ 3. Various small cafes, markets, stores, in general, for every taste.
It concentrates one of the best beaches in the country of gigantic size, clean, wide, and most importantly free. Its length is 7 km. Around it you can see islets-boats, and if the sea is not raging, you can get to them by boat. On one of these islands is an amusement park, another settled an entire horde of monkeys, the third is a farm for raising swallow’s nests.

Here you can also make and cultural program and look at the impressive view of the temple complex Po Nagar, get a photo with the sitting Buddha. At the resort it is impossible to be bored, you will definitely find something to be interesting.
Fukuok in May
Phu Quoc is located in the southernmost part of Vietnam. This place is more for family vacations rather than for fans of nightlife, there are no clubs at all. This island is the size of Singapore, and the main attractions are considered black pepper plantations, a pearl farm, and a fish sauce factory. There is also an attraction not for the faint-hearted – Fukuoka Prison.
The most active entertainment on the island is diving, which, by the way, the cheapest and best in the country, as well as in Nha Trang. And snorkeling, which you can do at small islands.

Phu Quoc is famous for the incredible beauty of sunsets. Here you can see the sun globe sits directly into the sea abyss. It is planned that in the near future in Phu Quoc will open an international airport and finish building all the roads, so if you go for a quiet comfortable rest, you should do it now.
This place is also suitable for holidays with children. There are really good clean beaches, no noisy companies. The only drawback is the price issue compared to the continent, but given the cost of excursions, the rest is cheap. As for the sights, it is possible to get to them only by plane, which is not very convenient.

Phan Thiet in May
This is a quiet, tranquil place, which has proved ideal for a holiday with the family or with children. Clean white sand, palm trees, and what is amazing, pine trees. It has a wide beach and a very comfortable flat entrance to the sea, which is especially suitable for children. But, also, Phan Thiet is also famous for good waves, for which it is loved by surfers.
Except resting on the beach, this resort has a lot of different attractions: historical, architectural monuments, as well as interesting natural sites. Worth seeing are Ke Ga Lighthouse, which is considered the most beautiful in all of Asia, the ruins of the ancient towers of Poshanu, the Pagoda of Linh Son Chiong Tho, pink dunes, Mui Ne fishing village and Vinh Hao Thermal Spring.

Mui Ne in May
This is an ideal place for surfers and kite surfers where the wind almost always blows perfect. Today it attracts wave-catchers from all over the world, there are concentrated at least two dozen surfing schools, and stations where you can rent the necessary equipment.
For those who go to Asia for the first time this is the best place for the first trip, because there are many Russian tourists, and the Vietnamese perfectly speak a rusty Russian and know how to cook borscht and salad “Olivier”.

Mui Ne has preserved the atmosphere of a small cozy village. There is no bustling waterfront, there is one main street dotted with a garland of stores, hotels and spas.
Da Nang in May.
Definitely a family resort, quiet and cozy, for another couple or three years for sure. This city is in the central part of the country and is now being actively built up, and renewed, and soon will burst with active life and all sorts of entertainment. But while all this is in progress, you can enjoy the silence and solitude, the amazing nature of the place and the historical sites. Among them are the Marble Mountains, the Cham Complex of Mishon, a museum with an incredible collection of Cham sculptures and the Haiwan Pass. You can’t get enough of the solid marble mountains, the amazing beach, and the incredibly long cable car.

An important plus when vacationing in Da Nang is the presence of an airport, which greatly facilitates flights with small children. Also, the former imperial capital of Hue is only 2-3 hours away by car. But there are minuses in this resort, it is quite difficult to find good restaurants, and it is better not to eat at the local eateries.
Wung Tau in May
The active lifestyle of Vungtau is similar to Nha Trang, but a little quieter. There’s virtually no nightlife here, and the huge beaches are filled with families with children and couples. This city has a special atmosphere for romantic souls. There is a statue of Jesus Christ, very similar to the one in Rio de Janeiro. A large number of beaches, many of which are outside the city limits and open up the incredible beauty of this area.
The location of the resort is very convenient. But Vungtau is one of the oil cities of Vietnam, and on many beaches, right in the sea are installed drilling platforms. Therefore, you can not swim at all beaches.

- Picking up your closet should pay attention to lightweight cotton fabrics, be sure to wear clothes with sleeves, even short, because the sun in Vietnam is very dangerous.
- Be sure to take sunscreen, for children it is recommended to take the maximum protection.
- Headgear, you can take even a few.
- Comfortable comfortable shoes, especially if you plan to travel on excursions.

Season for holidays in Vietnam – 2022: when is the best time to go?
Sharing: the season in Vietnam, or when it is better to go to the country of rice and dragonfruit? Not to get soaked in the Asian way and not to get a baby tan (within the norm, of course).
Update-2022: Information about attractions, resorts and weather in Vietnam is also relevant. We’ve fixed everything we need – and we’ve written a separate text about the rules of entry, which are constantly changing. In brief, Vietnam admits vaccinated Russians with a certificate and psr-test 72 hours before departure. On arrival, you must go through 3 days of isolation in the hotel and take two tests.
Beginning and End of Season in Vietnam
If you are interested in the tourist season in Vietnam, do not rush to google “when to fly? – The country is warm all year round, you can always find a place in the sun. But because the territory is stretched out, it is better to consider not Vietnam as a whole, but the individual location. When in one corner the sun is scorching, in another – the rain pours, Peter rests.
We should mention that in Vietnam, it is customary to distinguish between three climate zones:
✓ North (Hanoi, Halong, Sapa) ✓ Central part (Danang, Hue, Hoi An) ✓ South (Ho Chi Minh City, Phan Thiet, Mui Ne, Vung Tau, Nha Trang, Phu Quoc) – the most touristy
In the south, the air and water temperatures do not vary much. The average is +28 ° C for both parameters. There are a lot of tourists all year round. The north is more contrasting by months. In winter it can be really cold (below +10 ° C in December and January). To vacation in this part of the country is better in the summer.
When choosing a resort for a vacation on the beach you should also pay attention to the presence of waves. In the south in December and January the sea warms up to +27 ° C, but for a quiet swim suitable only for Phu Quoc. Other top places at this time of year are occupied by surfers – that’s who the high season in Vietnam!
When is the best time to vacation in Vietnam? Beach season in resorts
Vietnam is different for the weather, it is possible to escape from everyday life for a week or two on its beaches in almost any brother-month, but it is important to choose the right direction. Say, Phu Quoc (south) will warm the Russian winter, and Hoi An (center) is more suitable for summer tans.
So when to fly and where to go? To make it easier for you to navigate in a vinaigrette of seasons in Vietnam, we have made tips:
In the southern part.
From Tuihoa City to Ca Mau National Park (the southernmost point in the country)
In the center.
From Quang Binh province to Tuihoa
From the border with China to Quang Binh Province
|Nha Trang||Phu Quoc||Phan Thiet and Mui Ne||Hanoi|

Services for searching cheap tours
Do you know how long it takes to fly to Vietnam? 9 hours. The country itself is not expensive, but the tickets are expensive! It is cheaper and more convenient to visit Vietnam as a part of a tour.
We recommend services to find great deals (they work with all leading tour operators):
Find tours here – easy. For example, enter in a search of the same Phan Thiet. When best to go – you can decide by scrolling the line “price calendar. So, we got a tour in January for 10 days from Moscow for 78,000 rubles. For comparison: only airfare for two will cost 68,000 rubles minimum.
The season in Fukuok
The island of Phu Quoc – a hot tropical zone. You will not get cold here (however hard you try), it is warm – on average +30 ° C. There are three seasons, each for its own taste.
This period is the best time in Fukuoka – the perfect season for a holiday in Vietnam and the best time for excursions. The sun is not too hot (+29 ° C … +30 ° C), precipitation is minimal. But let’s face it, for such conditions you will have to pay more (hotels are raising the price tag, the flight check is also growing).
Beach recreation is as good as in the season above. It can only be overshadowed by the rains that begin in May. But among the pleasant bonuses are cheaper hotels.
Is it warm? Yes. But only a very lucky beachgoer will be lucky with the weather – long live the rainy season! Although there are exceptions, when the sky for a few days will not shed a single tear – such a roulette.
In summer and autumn, prices for travel to Phu Quoc fall significantly. So, “seasonal” value of the tour to Vietnam for two persons for 10 nights in 2022 – from 110,000 rubles. “Unseasonable” – from 88 000 rubles!
Season in Nha Trang
To the beaches of Nha Trang today / tomorrow / in six months. The resort season in both winter and summer is open, but the change of seasons is still felt.
- Low season Start: mid-October End: mid-December
This is a period of precipitation, high winds, and rough seas. The season is not a swimming season, but surfing in Vietnamese Nha Trang will definitely succeed. And typhoons O_O occasionally occur, greatly reducing the price of recreation – in everything you have to look for the pluses. In between weather tantrums you can sunbathe, quite.
- High Season When does the season start? January (for swimming in March) Ends: September
Rains? Nope, haven’t heard:) The best time for a sun lounger and sunscreen (except for the relatively cold January and February – temperatures can drop below +20°C). But if the budget is limited, to save money we advise to buy the tour in advance – it is called “high” for a reason.
Beach season in Vietnam dictates its conditions – a tour of 10 nights costs from 95,000 rubles. If you decide to “sacrifice” sunny days in November, you can fly in and for 65 000 rubles.
Weather in Vietnam by month
We will tell you about the weather in Vietnam by months – the best time to rest everyone will be able to determine for himself.
As you know, from December to May in Vietnam, not only the influx of tourists, but also the mango season. Where to go for vitamin C (which is so rich in juicy fruit), where is the warmest sea and hotter sun?
Vietnam in December, January and February
Is it worth rushing to Vietnam in winter: what month is better and where to go?
South (Phu Quoc). It’s hot, dry and the air temperature is around +30°C or even higher. The average water temperature is +26°C, precipitation is minimal – a kind of natural all inclusive. Is not the location for a beach holiday in Vietnam? Especially in December on New Year’s Eve.
The central part (Da Nang, Hoi An). In a word – comfortable. The air: +25 ° C, the sea is not much different. But the notion of a full vacation in the sun in winter is inappropriate here; the winds and waves do not give a quiet splash in the water
✓ North (Hanoi, Sapa). Monsoons drive the rainy season and chilly weather. The temperature is +17°C, but sometimes the temperature reaches the anomalous +30°C. The sea warms up on average also to +17 ° C. If the water in December is still favorable for a beach-vacation (+22 ° C), in January and February is clearly a bit cold (walruses do not count)
For tourists with experience Fukuok = Vietnam. The season – from November to June, year-round calm sea and heat. Most resorts in the south (Nha Trang, Phan Thiet, Mui Ne) in winter disappoint beachgoers. To swim without waves, sometimes you have to look for hard-to-reach locations. Which is time-consuming and expensive.
Vietnam in March, April and May
Vietnam in the spring will be appreciated by those who can hardly stand the heat. The air temperature does not exceed +30 ° C. And you can bathe on the whole coast of the South China Sea.
The weather in the south in March and April is dry and hot. The sea is like fresh milk. But closer to the end of spring, be prepared for showers (except Nha Trang). The central part is even more comfortable temperature, +27 ° C. But it rains regularly.
The north of Vietnam in March is a bit cold, especially for swimming. The daytime temperature is +22 ° C, and even “fresh” at night. Although in April you can splash in the sea as much as you want. And only in May – the excess of precipitation, often early in the morning or late at night (in principle, a rest is not a problem).
The best time to travel along the coast is April. It’s relatively dry, warm, and the sea allows you to swim. In spring, when it is cold in most regions of Russia, to go on a tour of hot Vietnam is the best!
When is the rainy season in Vietnam?
Continuing to get acquainted with the seasons in Vietnam by month, or when to expect rainfall?
Vietnam in summer (June, July, August)
Everything described below does not apply to the resort of Nha Trang The season is in full swing there!
Already somewhere in May and June the monsoons come to the country, and with them the heat (over +35 ° C) and moisture – to the question of why Vietnam in the summer associated with the rainy season.
In the south and north in July and August it rains heavily. It is hot and very stuffy. At the end of summer the water heats up to +29 ° C, and the air is even higher. Only the central part can boast a relatively dry summer climate, the air temperature +30 ° C, the sea +28 ° C. But already August spoils the picture considerably with the season of typhoons and bad weather.
Vietnam in September and October and November
If we talk about Vietnam in the fall, everything is not so straightforward. The easiest way to orient yourself is to look at the color table at the beginning of the text.
In September in the northern part of the country, the rainy season comes to an end, while in the south and center they are in full swing, and the storm – as an indispensable attribute. However, the heat stays under +30 ° C.
In October and early November in all regions the weather settles down. Except the center and Nha Trang – the rainy season is at its peak. And the last month of autumn is under the slogan “Winter is coming”: the temperature in November may drop to +16 ° C.
